The self-styled foreign minister of the self-proclaimed Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (NKR), David Babayan, was in Russia from 6 to 15 October for a working visit. 

Visiting Moscow, the Vladimir region, Pyatigorsk and Sochi, Babayan reportedly met with representatives of the Russian political, public, scientific and educational circles; the Armenian community of Russia, including those from the self-proclaimed NKR; and the Armenian Apostolic Church.

According to the report by the self-styled foreign ministry, “issues related to the current situation in the region,  possible developments, prospects for the settlement of the Azerbaijan-Karabagh conflict, further deepening of ties between Artsakh and the Diaspora, and the involvement of the Armenian community of Russia in the development of Artsakh were discussed”.

The Azerbaijani Embassy in Moscow said Babayan did not have meetings with any Russian officials during his visit.
